Charlotte Should not be born yet.
« on: March 05, 2009, 12:09:15 PM »
Last year Ben stated that Charlotte's birthday was July 2, 1979. How is she alive on the island in 1974 when Daniel sees her??

Did Ben lie or is it a mistake by the producers?

Interesting....well, we know that other stuff from what Ben said was a lie: about her being born in England, at least. Possible he could have lied about that. Maybe that's the history she was told so she wouldn't think about the island anymore...and that's the history that's out there, in files and stuff that Ben had people investigate for him. He got wrong information??

Maybe it's a mistake by Daniel. He might have seen a little girl that he THOUGHT was Charlotte but really wasn't.

I think when Charlotte left the island with her mother she was given a totally new idenity just Locke and Ben have had.

Seems like the way to go. Like if she was on the island until 1979, and then her and her mother left the island, and falsified all of her documents so that her offisland birthday was in '79. Either that...or a HUGE flub by the producers.

You can tell a girl that her birthday is one or two years off, but TEN? No way that's a good excuse. It's either a mistake or she wasn't Charlotte, imho.

I really hope it turns out not to be her or a good explanation is given because that would be a huge mistake in the timeline

With how complex and intertwined everything is on this show, I can't see the producers making a mistake like that. They know how we LOST fans analyze everything that happens and try to interpret some hidden meaning. Everything happens for a reason!

Wait a minute...what if, when Charlotte and her mum leave the island, THEY jump into the future...so, Charlotte is 5yo when they leave, but they jump to 1984?? That would explain everything. But of course the new question would be, wtf with time-jumping Charlotte??

i do not believe that there is all of this time jumping. Desmond did because of the hatch turn key and those results. Ben and Locke and Losties did because of the donkey wheel. Don't think Charlotte got off the island because of this.

Time jumping may have been a factor. Good point, but I guess it would depend on how she left??? I still think that a fake passport may have been her only link to her birth though.

I dont' think it was Charlotte.  Dan is grieving and saw a little red head.  

Maybe they can fool some casual Lost fans, but not us!

Yeah, but she had an English accent too.
